technology for architects and designers


CEDIA Certified Members are electronic systems professionals They make technology work. Simply and efficiently.

If you’re an architect or designer, you’ll appreciate the need for synergy across a project. It’s not only the ability to combine materials and designs that work in unity – the key is to create an environment that is practical, functional and aesthetically pleasing. Your design influences how people live, how they interact and even their mood. It is more than just a skill, it’s a talent. So when it comes to technology, shouldn’t you partner with someone who has the ability to deliver your vision with the same level of commitment, professionalism and passion? Technology can be a standout feature in a space, or blend transparently into the environment so that it doesn’t detract from the flow of the design. Either way, a CEDIA Certified Member will ensure that the integrity of your project is never compromised and the technology is seamlessly integrated.
